what is happening in the united states with a wary eye, cnn international anchor jim clancy is with me now. jim, this is such a hyper-focused american problem and yet it's really a problem for the whole world. >> it definitely is. if mitch mcconnell is looking for a dance partner. the united states is the dance partner for the entire world. the markets hate uncertainty what they hate even more is steering abject failure square in the face. those markets are going to open up in four or five hours' time we should see some limited reaction in asia. but perhaps not yet. it's still uncertain what is going to happen here. there's a huge stake. everyone realizes. europe has got its problems. germany starting to feel the effects of the global, of the downturn in europe. china, cutting its growth forecasts, india doing the same. the last thing anyone on the world stage needs right now is for the u.s. to start sliding back into recession. but you know, let's be clear here. that's, that would take some time. there would still be time for some kind of a deal. but it's the uncertainty that is reall
. >> caller: hi, jim. for a beginning investor new to the stock market, would you advise shorting stock? and could you explain how one would make money trading in that manner? >> no, i do not advise shorting stock. losses can be infinite. i would prefer you to buy puts and you protect your upside sales call. and you protect your down side, and go back to getting even. i describe in 100 pages how it's better to buy puts. we know the key things to look for. great stocks to buy, insider buying is one of them, particularly when there is a heavy short position. that can often be a combustible situation that can explode to the upside. stay with cramer. >>> nobody is more passionate about the market than i am. nobody in the whole country. >> i want to thank you. have you saved my retirement. >> you are why i come out here and do this show. thank you so much. >> the stuff that are you doing for all of us, is so important. i want to say thank you. >> my husband and i watch every day, and we count on your help for small investors like us. >> put cramer's 30 plus years of experience to work for yo
-weather meteorologist jim dickey to tell us more, jim? >> yeah, good evening, harris, this storm incredible yelled. rapidly striking its way up the coast and brought a swath of snow. and up to 20 inches from the storm and now across the region, not much to look at, but it isn't telling the full story and the pressure off the coast, and bringing in cold air and gusty winds. when you factor in the wind, the real-feel, minus 2 in portland and temperatures will fall here, cold ones, especially in new england and fall to 5 in burlington, down to a cold 9 in portland. like you said, winter is here to stay and of course, we're already looking for our next snowstorm here and new year's eve watching a large system drift out of the four corners out of the southern tier of the rockies, bringing soaking rain across the lower mississippi valley and a swath of snow from the central and southern plains into the ohio valley and not the snow maker we just saw or the predecessor of that storm either. still, decent snow in some spots and especially into kansas through the afternoon, through the morning here, and tha

"cnn newsroom" continues now with martin savidge. don't go anywhere. >> thank you very much. >>> welcome to the cnn "newsroom." i'm martin savidge in for fredricka whitfield. here are the top stories we are following right now. >>> that fiscal cliff. we are at the very edge. senate leaders are working through the weekend trying to reach a deal before the deadline. today president obama called on lawmakers to meet their deadlines and responsibilities and forge a compromise to avoid tax hike and spending cuts from taking effect. lisa desjardins is live on capitol hill. what's going on right now? >> reporter: right now it's all behind closed doors, martin. what we just have learned in the last hour, in fact, what reporters have seen here, a surprise. house speaker john boehner was here at the capitol. we're still trying to sort out exactly why he was here, but he wasn't here for very long, it seems. he left in the last hour. also, we were able

that ended about 45 minutes away. >> jim, the meeting started at 3:10 and ended at 4:15. the four congressional leaders left without speaking to the media. with $600 billion in tax hikes set to take effect new year's day. senior advisers said the president was set to make a small offer with the full support of reid and pelosi. nbc news has learned that a previous offered made by the president, the one that involved a tax increase for only those earning more than $400 is off the table. advisers say that was part of a bigger proposal that speaker boehner did not accept. it looks like the current proposal goes back to raising taxes on those who make more than $250,000. the proposal known as plan b didn't work. it will remain to be seen if the smaller plan will. either way the countdown to the if you year could be very costly. >> i'm hopeful that a deal will avoid the worst parts of a fiscal live cliff. >> the tax increases need to be averted, avoided. they can be. i think in the end we'll get a deal. the question is the timing of that. >> according to administration officials, senior
. jim gillis is vice president of gulf intermodal services, a container trucking company. >> we've seen a dramatic increase in volumes and congestion as a result. >> reporter: what happens if they can't get all the goods out of the port? >> you have containers being held in yards around the houston area, specifically, so you're going to see stores are going to have problems stocking. >> reporter: negotiations between the international longshoremen's union and the shipping companies are deadlocked over a proposal to cut royalties paid to 15,000 dock workers for each ton of cargo they move. a shutdown would affect 15 ports on the east and gulf coasts, including new york, baltimore, miami and houston. the ports handle nearly 50% of all oceangoing container shipments to the united states. some estimate a shutdown could cost a billion dollars a day in delayed shipments and lost work along the supply chain. independent truck driver jose espinoza hauls shipments in and out of houston's port. >> next week, it means i'm going to be out of business. that's because if i don't work, i don't get pai
and stop this from happening. think about some of the senators were talking about. senator jim demint, a tea party favorite from south carolina, is retiring at the end of his term. he is going to head the heritage foundation. it might be good for him in his new position to be the person to stop the tax increases from going into the fact. -- into effect. is not like he is going to do it. but that is all it takes. guest: there is precedent for it. in the august debt ceiling crisis in 2011, the house approved on well in or unable to act. it was a deal with senator reid and senator mcconnell. it paved the way for the deal that actually lead us to where we are now. not saying that is equality deal, but it was located in the senate before -- a quality deal, but it was located in the senate before. guest: we ended up a fiscal cliff. that was not tax increase. if there is one thing that is important to republicans, it is taxes. this becomes a much more sensitive issue especially in the current environment. the debt ceiling, that is also important to the republican base. host: we are taking yo
democratic primary over a guy named jim shannon. then came the biggest break of all, on the same today voters turned on elliot richardson. he was one of the few heroes of watergate. but the republicans dumped him in their primary in favor of a right wing businessman. only then was john kerry's path to the senate and all the prominence and all the opportunities that senate seat has afforded him, only then was that clear. in politics we tend to ridicule losers or ignore them. but john kerry's road back is a reminder of how arbitrary this game really is. all right, that does it for "the cycle." karen finney, you're in for martin bashir and it's all yours. >> all right. it's wednesday, december 26th. we hope you're having a wonderful holiday because the president's is about to end. boehner and the boys? what's the rush? ♪ >> first of all, we want to say merry christmas. >> president obama is cutting short his christmas break with the fiscal cliff looming large. >> the fiscal cliff gets closer. congress now has six days left to make a deal. >> aloha, hawaii. >> to my republican coll
under a jim crow system, okay? now we're talking about the people who get preferences now were born in 1994. that doesn't seem like very long ago to somebody my age. 994. that's, you know, 30 years after the 1964 civil rights act. according to the latest census, one in four americans now describe themselves as being something other than white. african-americans are not the largest minority group anymore. they haven't been for a while. latinos are a larger minority group than african-americans are. and neither one of them is the fastest-growing racial minority group. the fastest-growing racial minority group is asian-americans. african-americans are growing at only a 12.3% rate, white americans at only a 5.7% rate. another rapidly-growing group are people like our president who could check more than one box in the race and ethnicity section of their questionnaire. seems to me, and i think in the supreme court, that in a country like that we cannot have a legal regime that sorts people according to their skin color and what country their an access or to haves came from and treat some
-- on a no tax increase on anybody. >> that's right, which is why boehner pulled the plug, jim, you'll recall, on that vote, which was supposed to be a show vote to put the pressure on the president to draw the line at a million. when he realized he didn't have a majority of the republicans, he didn't go forward. what this is now is an old school where you have a bipartisan society, where boehner would be asked to permit a vote, even if he knew most republicans would vote no. it's humiliating for a speaker, especially in this milieu, in the world we live in now. it would set up boehner to maybe lose the speakership when the vote is taken in the house for that on january 3rd. it would certainly mean a fight. you would have paul ryan, cantor saying, wait a minute, this guy forced a vote we didn't want to take, but that's what the president is trying to get boehner to do. give me a few republicans, says boim bhoim, i'll deliver democrats, i'll deliver senate and sign the bill and save 97% of americans from a tax hike. boehner might not be able to do it or might refuse to do it. that's the next s
on the fiscal cliff, some tea partiers seem ready to compromise on taxes. here's jim acosta. >> reporter: for the tea party, change is brewing on capitol hill. florida republican alan west who rode the tea party wave in congress two years ago only to be swept out in november has already lost its office which is being prepped by painters for its new occupant. >> they say he's an outsider, a reformer. >> reporter: another tea partier, kansas congressman tim huleskamp, was booted from his seat on the budget committee he believes to john boehner wanted to send a message, to get in line for a deal on the fiscal cliff. >> we have determine thursday is some secret scorecard. a scorecard which based on testimony votes -- >> reporter: i think there's house -- >> i think there's potentially i hope not to push a tax increase through the house, and we will see what happens. >> reporter: while the speaker denied he's bringing down the hammer, stating in a letter that "there is no scorecard," -- >> stop spending now! stop spending now! >> reporter: it's clear, tea partiers are not rallying to shut dow
lawmaker. congressman jim clyburn believes mrs. obama would be a breath of fresh air in d.c. she's honest and straightforward. "she's exactly what we need around here." and recent polling shows mrs. obama beating senator mark kirk of illinois by double digits in a hypothetical match-up. her husband's adviser david axelrod is warning michelle obama fans not to get their hopes up. >> i don't think michelle has any desire to be a politician. she'll find ways to make contributions, i'm sure. but the last thing i think she would do is run for public office. >> of course there are a number of ways for the first lady to make her mark after her husband finishes his second term. as samuel l. jackson tells "newsweek," michelle is superwoman. "what can't she do?" i agree with that. run, michelle, run. tonight in our survey i asked you, is john boehner's move to reconvene the house a face-saving political move or a genuine effort to reach a deal? 97% say political move. 3% say genuine effort. coming up, dr. james peterson joins me to discuss "django unchained." i'll share my thoughts on the movie tha

some of the senators we're talking about. senator jim demint is retiring at the end of this congress. he will become the head of the very conservative heritage foundation. it might be good for him in his new position to be the person that stopped the tax increase from going to affect, who stopped the senate from voting for a tax increase. i am not saying he will do it, but it just takes one senator to stop this. this is the body we are relying on to get a deal. it is hard to imagine. host: josh gordon? guest: in 2011, a house proved unable or unwilling to act. it was a deal with senator reid and senator mcconnell that paved the way for the deal that led us to where we are now. the deal was located in the senate before the house jumped on. guest: this is a little different. he is right. that is what led to the super committee being formed. that failed. we ended up with the fiscal cliff. that was not a tax increase. one thing important to the republican base is tax increases. this becomes a more sensitive issue in the current environment. the debt ceiling is also important to the repub

, the judiciary committee on which i serve heard dramatic testimony from former deputy attorney general jim comby about the efforts of chief of staff andrew card and counsel alberto gonzalez to pressure attorney general john ashcroft some into reauthorizing this surveillance of american citizens while ashcroft was in the hospital. after "the new york times" revealed the existence of warrantless surveillance program, the bush administration demanded the congress pass legislation authorizing it. this led to enactment of the fisa amendments in 2008. in short, this legislation was born in original sin. congress added some oversight requirements and civil liberties protection to the bush administration's warrantless surveillance program but they didn't go far enough. that's why i opposed the original fisa amendments act along with a majority of democratic senators. i supported an earlier version offered by senator leahy, chairman of our judiciary committee, which would have authorized broad surveillance powers but included civil liberties protections. back in 2008, the bush administration accused oppo
